Thank you for your answers. Amazon recommended that I get a new one as it can't be repaired.
I haven't brought anything yet as I'm using my laptop to charge it but will be travelling again so I have to do something soon.
Terencek - I saw some car chargers on ebay but wasn't sure whether its one size fits all or do I have to get one that fits my car's cigerette lighter. Do you know?
Alex - thank you for letting me know about Myers. Also I read that the K is coming to Woolies and Dick Smith so I should be able to buy one from them. that way I'll save on postage.
Erik - where did you buy your solar charger from? I think that would be really neat to have.
By the way I also saw some power adapters for K3 on ebay for $3.50 - do you think they are save to use?
thank you for your help
